We have experience carrying out water efficiency retrofits, energy efficiency retrofits, kitchen renovations, bathroom renovations, painting, and patching. Building Up has a master plumber and journeymen painter on staff to oversee each and every project.
Social Value: Building Up trains and employs people with multiple barriers to employment to carry out each and every project we undertake. Participants are paid fair wages for their time in the field and the classroom. The revenues generated by our work funds an extensive in-class training program where participants upgrade their math, literacy, social skills, and workplace essential skills. Following their time with Building Up, participants are placed with long-term apprenticeship opportunities across local trades unions.
